It is one of the better restaurants in Nairobi. I enjoy the location and ambiance. At dinner, there is safe and ample parking. Very good food. Good wine menu.

The food here is really good. I've been twice and ordered off of the extensive daily specials menu both times and was not disappointed. Easily the best Italian in Nairobi.
